Re: Chemistry & O Chem; Chapter 5: Charles' Law

The newest reprinting completed in late March, and the course itself (that is: making truly "new" course students) launches in early April. Your print is from mid-November. Definitely do contact your academic manager though if you're either interested in switching over or would like a newer copy of ...

Re: Chemistry & O Chem; Chapter 5: Charles' Law

You are totally correct, although I am not certain which changelog you are looking at. This error has been fixed for the next printing, which all new course students should be receiving. For this re-release, every book was checked and corrected page-by-page and we can confidently say now that this w...

Re: biochem ch.2 p.48-49

Which intermediates are sent to gluconeogenesis though? And what is acetyl-CoA added onto? To be direct: Pyruvate -> OAA is the fundamental entry point for gluconeogenesis. OAA is indeed a TCA intermediate, but it's removal results in effectively 'interrupting' the cycle, as we are removing the recy...

Re: Biochem QBank #1 Proteins/Enzymes Q#27

You can't inhibit a drug: Drugs don't do anything by themselves, they only interact with enzymes, receptors and other components of metabolism. To use an analogy, I don't say that putting sugar in the tank of a car breaks the sugar - rather I say that it breaks the car by gunking up the fuel pump. S...

Re: physics ch.6 p.133

"Work in an electric field is a conserved quantity" is what that should say, to be a little bit more correct. But that is still not great. "Conservative" vs "non-conservative" refers to properties of forces and how we model them. Conservative forces are those in which the work done by the force is i...

Re: biochem ch.2 p.48-49

Does going through the Krebs cycle make glucose, or does it make reduced electron carriers for the production of ATP? ;) And if I add 2 carbons to oxaloacetate, then send the resulting citrate moiety back through the Krebs cycle - which two carbons are cleaved off as CO2? As in, why is it called a c...

Re: AAMC Section bank: B/B questions.

This slipped past for a while. Let's take a look! #17: Right, you're looking for the mutant that breaks the palindrome. Southern blotting is a form of restriction enzyme digest - the idea is that the size and number of fragments will change if the relevant palindromic sequence is not present. Assumi...

Re: Protons Pumped Per NADH/FADH2 for ETC

Ah, welcome to like... my favorite topic ever. It's super cool because we don't normally get to dork out and just keeping asking "BUT WHY? HOW?" and have it be part of our studying. Here we can! So let's break ATP synthesis down to it's most foundational concept: A proton (H+) gradient is establishe...

Re: Switched Mcat 5/15 to 6/19

You can submit on time and have your application verified before submitting your MCAT, FYI. Additionally, the AAMC has released statements that they are aware and online classes won't impact your chances. Odds are good some accommodation for the application cycle is in the works too, but this may ta...

#10: This is just about recalling what a source monitoring error is. Namely, recalling a piece of information but either not recalling the source or not recalling the source correctly. Essentially, if you see 3 spellings of Benedict Cumberbatch's name and were convinced you chose the correct one - y...
